Major initiative launched to empower young Saudis

JEDDAH (Rahnuma): The Prince Mohammed bin Salman Foundation’s (Misk) Initiatives Center in collaboration with the Qiddiya Investment Co. (QIC) has launched yet another training program to prepare young Saudis for the future and empower them to efficiently contribute to Saudi Vision 2030.

Following the launch of Misk/Amaala and the success of the first Misk/Qiddiya internship program, the center launched the second Misk/Qiddiya program through the “Fellowship and Training” initiative to create a comprehensive learning experience for recent university graduates in hospitality, business, engineering, information technology and entertainment.

The program will run for 28 weeks in Riyadh, and will provide trainees with an opportunity to work alongside senior team members in many fields, preparing them for large-scale develop-ment projects.

The Qiddiya project is one of the major schemes under the umbrella of Saudi Vision 2030. It was launched by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in April 2018. It aims to become a pioneering entertainment destination located around 40 km from the center
of Riyadh.

With a total area of 334 sq. km, Qiddiya is 2.5 times the size of Walt Disney World. The project is expected to have 300 activities from five entertainment sectors, to be one of four large projects owned by the Kingdom’s Public Investment Fund. It is also expected to shape Saudi Arabia’s new economy, along with the Amaala, Red Sea and Neom projects.

Interns participating in the Misk/Qiddiya program will learn about Qiddiya’s concept, values and objectives, and get an opportunity to visit the site to view construction work. Then an intensive induction and orientation phase will begin with interns joining their relevant teams in the following weeks, working alongside the project’s experts to complete a number of professional missions.

In the last week of the program, participants will complete an individual project, which will be assessed by a committee from Misk and the QIC. The graduation project is a rare chance for trainees to receive job offers at QIC upon completion.

Registration ends on Dec. 14, 2019, and the 28-week program will be officially launched on Jan. 19, 2020.
